What is permaculture III

  1. 1. What is Permaculture  Lecture III in Bertinoro (FC), 24 November 2015
  2. 2. Principle 7: Design from patterns to details “Can’t see the forest for the trees” By stepping back, we can observe patterns in nature and society.These can form the backbone of our designs, with the details filled in as we go.
  3. 3. Principle 8: Integrate rather than segregate “Many hands make light work” By putting the right things in the right place, relationships develop between them and they support each other.
  4. 4. Principle 9: Use small and slow solutions “The bigger they are, the harder they fall.”“Slow and steady wins the race.” Small and slow systems are easier to maintain than big ones, making better use of local resources and produce more sustainable outcomes.
  5. 5. Principle 10: Use and value diversity “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket” Diversity reduces vulnerability to a variety of threats and takes advantage of the unique nature of the environment in which it resides.
  6. 6. Principle 11: Use edges & value the marginal “Don’t think you are on the right track just because it’s a well-beaten path” The interface between things is where the most interesting events take place.These are often the most valuable, diverse and productive elements in the system.
  7. 7. Principle 12: Creatively use and respond to change “Vision is not seeing things as they are but as they will be” We can have a positive impact on inevitable change by carefully observing, and then intervening at the right time.
  8. 8. Asignement/Homework  How can I apply the principles in my project?  Are the principles already in my project/design/system?  Do I recognise a pattern in my project? (a pattern of form, behaviour, seasonality, rithm)  Can I find a pattern to improve the quality of my project/design?
